RE: NYC Searches -- news story says 'passengers selected for searches will be approached by officers, who will ask them what they are carrying, and request them to open their bags. If an officer looking for explosives finds some other form of contraband, police said that person would be subject to arrest.'

that is not good for those of us with psk's and edc knives.

glad I don't live in NYC, but coming soon to a town near you......

You wouldn't use a single cable... you'd have to braid several cables together. That's what the 'e' in Cat-5e stands for you know... "Escape" rated.

You have to twist it all together and tie it to building ground in order to avoid EMP.

I keep food and drinks in my desk, my EDC and my BOB is in my truck. I also don't park in or on one of the garages, I park in a side lot and always try to park in an end space so there are only cars on one side of me.

I made the assumption that the manager would take a headcount. As slow as people were to walk down the stairs and some self appointed safety person half way down telling us to get in single file made it even slower. I'm going a different way and heading straight to my truck (I know I didn't pack a bomb so that makes my truck safer to me than the rest of the cars even if there is a chance someon would have planted a bomb under it.)

I made a noose once and hung the sutffed purple dinosaur, I got several commnets about doing too well of a job on the noose, but was later asked to take it down for fear that it would offend someone. My comment was the only person it may offend would be someone that has never seen/heard said puple dino.

Yes it was a joke, though we are on the 4th floor and there is a nice hill halfway up the first so I would really only drop the length of 3 floors, I could probably survive just jumping but the cat 5 may slow me down <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

They send us a link to the plan afterward but I found it doesn't give much more than follow the fire route posted in the breakrooms and says to get 300ft away from the building, doesn;t say to stand on top of the garage like the gaurd told us or anything about managers taking head count to make sure everyone is ok. It did say anyone handicapped will have two pre-approved buddies that will stay with them and help them down the stairs after anyone else. Now I understand the handicapped person would slow down the rest of the sheep but seems to me that they could easily sue for being designated as last to get out.
